Good morning Raven we are not doing to good with our water lately. Your doing a lot of foraging lately - had never heard that word before. Of course I am french I will use that to justify it. I have one more day of work and then I will take a day off. Have a great day.


mylilsista on 05/03/2013:
I've been a forging lately too and my water has been consumed with coffee added to it (yep, I am the poster child for self control)...LOL Here's to a better day today (raising coffee cup)!

The cucumbers and squash in the harden are in trouble and I don't know why. They kind of shriveled up and turned pale. I think I gotta swap them out and test my soil again. Maybe too much nitrogen.

Foraging found wild Garlic. Found all the differences between them, onions and death camas.

Have a Healthy Day.

We had rehearsal at a band mate's house yesterday, now that the weather is better. He grilled out and we all brought a covered dish. I brought a green bean cassarole. We are doing a 50s show at the end of the month. I still think I over-ate a bit.

The good old 50s music is there anything better then that. Have a great day Raven. Hope you have a great month of May.


grannyannie on 05/01/2013:
Occasional overeating doesn't hurt, Ohio. Sounds fun with your 50's music! Sounds like you're enjoying your gardening. I'm not the gardener but my hubby is and he loves it.

Have fun with your band this evening..Hey as long as you are staying true to your workouts, a little extra food won't hurt by the way.. RYC obliques are the colored portion in this pic, and screaming obliques are not a bad thing..

I went foraging yesterday, got more dandelions, wild onions, miners lettuce and some wild ginger. Bought a coffee grinder to grind up my dried dandelion roots and ginger for tea. Also seeking the elusive stinging nettle for its roots and my next soup.

Interesting pickings Raven. Natures little treasures. Enjoy and have a great day.


grannyannie on 04/29/2013:
Doing great, Ohio! I drink a lot of fennel & nettle tea...out of a box though. No shortage of stinging nettles here. I've run into a few. Ouch.


IndependentEm93 on 04/29/2013:
Have a great day!


graindart on 04/29/2013:
I'm glad to see that you haven't regressed to wild eating after making it to your goal. I think maintaining a sensible weight is actually harder for me than losing.


Puddles on 04/29/2013:
Raven just thought I would share my BIL is really not doing well - not eating - on ensure supplements and just sleeping a lot. The Dr. does not think he will make it to the birth of his grandchild. Yesterday was their 40th wedding anniversary yesterday. I was going to see my son in a few weeks but I am going to wait because I will probably just get back from Ottawa and will have to go back down to that area. Thank you for listening.


Tangalyn~ on 04/29/2013:
good job maintaining. u rock!


hollybelle on 04/29/2013:
I think stinging nettle is very young in your (our) neck of the woods right now and I believe it is harder to ID beacause it looks so different than the middle-aged or mature plants. Do you forage on undeveloped land, I must have missed that. You may be a veteran plant hunter so excuse my comments if they seem elementary. I think plants are facinating - especially their potential for medicinal use. :-)


biscottibody59 on 04/29/2013:
Enjoy! Good on maintaining!
